TEF Digital's TokBox Does Video Chat for iOS
SAN FRANCISCO -- TokBox, a Telefónica Digital company, today released OpenTok on Web-RTC, making OpenTok the first platform to enable anyone to build high quality video chats using WebRTC-enabled browsers. For the first time, it is now possible to build two-way video between WebRTC-enabled browsers and iOS devices, solving a major barrier for many developers and corporations who wish to provide a high quality experience to their users across devices.
OpenTok on WebRTC was launched to coincide with Google’s release of Chrome 23 and works seamlessly with the new browser, which is the first to natively support WebRTC. So now video calls can be made between people on Chrome browsers, and also between a person on Chrome and someone using an iOS device.
As part of its vision to enable face-to-face video communication across all devices, TokBox also unveiled support for Android. The company added an early access release of its OpenTok Android SDK into OpenTok Labs, allowing developers to add video chat into Android apps with only a few lines of code.
